Chronic knee pain is extremely common, affecting approximately 25% of all adults. Whether your pain is the result of arthritis, an old sports injury or something else, it can really cramp your lifestyle. Fortunately, you don’t have to take chronic knee pain lying down. ViscoGen® now offers exosome therapy as part of its regenerative treatment programs, putting lasting relief within your reach.
What Is Exosome Therapy?
Exosomes are fluid-filled sacs that carry lipids, proteins, growth factors and nucleic acids (RNA and DNA). These sacs contain up to three times more growth factors than other substances used in regenerative medicine therapy, which helps them stimulate cell growth. Exosome therapy is an injection-based therapy that delivers exosomes to the site of your chronic pain, easing discomfort and promoting healing.
Benefits of Exosome Therapy
Exosome therapy has many benefits and is especially effective when administered by the experienced professionals at ViscoGen®. Since exosomes contain more growth factors than other therapeutic substances, they do a better job of restoring damaged tissue. Injection-based therapy is also much less invasive than surgery, which means you can return to your normal activities quickly instead of spending months recovering from a painful procedure. Exosome therapy helps with the following sources of chronic pain:
- Muscle strains
- Sports injuries
- Muscle tears
- Musculoskeletal disorders
How Exosomes Fit Into a Regenerative Medicine Therapy Program
At ViscoGen®, we’re committed to helping patients recover from chronic knee pain and get back to doing what they love. Exosome therapy is just one component of our comprehensive regenerative medicine program. The first step is to perform advanced imaging to give you an accurate diagnosis and come up with an effective treatment plan.
Once you have a diagnosis, you can start exosome therapy and take advantage of other treatment options. We offer the following to help Lake Nona residents with chronic knee pain:
- Hyaluronic acid injections: Some people have chronic knee pain because there is not enough hyaluronic acid (HA) in their joints. HA lubricates the joints, reducing friction and preventing discomfort. We inject HA directly into the joint capsule, restoring as much function as possible.
- Bracing: When you have chronic knee pain, it’s important to reduce the amount of stress you place on the joint. Bracing redistributes the pressure on your sore knee, relieving pain and improving your mobility.
- Strengthening exercises: ViscoGen® also has an on-site training and rehabilitation facility, giving you an opportunity to follow a customized strengthening program. This program is designed according to your unique needs, helping you achieve lasting pain relief.
